Ruger kudos...

I was in another class this morning talking to an instructor about training guns.  He’s also a Ruger pistol fan and uses Mark model pistols exclusively to qualify folks for CCW class certificate.  Told me he sent one of his oldest guns to Ruger for repairs, a gun that by his log already had about 70,000 rounds through it.  They told him it was beyond repair and sent him a new one, no charge.

I thought you guys might want to hear this one!!!

    Great info
    I have never sent anything to them, but did receive excellent information from a tech on the phone 👍

    I own only one Ruger, a 10/22T SST, but it's been a stellar performer for almost 25 years.

    Own a 10/22 full barrel silencer good and accurate but the silencer makes it get dirty quick.  I suppose there is a simple method of taking down the magazines, but it's beyond me.  Also have a 77-22 Hornet the most accurate Hornet I've owned.

    Like a fool I got rid of my 77 in 7x57. It was accurate as well, but a couple of No 1s left a bad taste for that model.  One was in 25-06, which was accurate, but fool again I sold it.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    Excellent company. Excellent guns.

    I read just this week that some investment cast parts have been tested to be stronger than forged.

    My GP100 is beyond enduring. Old and battered when I bought it. It could be the most reliable machine I've ever seen.

    Ruger and Savage are the working man's guns

    best part about the Ruger "warranty" (since they technically don't have one on paper) they don't care if you're the first or fifteenth owner, they fix THEIR guns basically no matter what,  and if they can't, they replace it.

    Also can be a pain with newer high volume guns,  they'll often just replace it instead of fixing it for a fast turn around (10/22, Americans,  SR series, etc). Which means you have to do a background check.  With 4473's taking a few days and the cost currently,  I've had some upset customers

    Dang, somebody wore out a Ruger .22, that is impressive.

    This guy runs CCW classes for 30 people.  30 shots to qualify each.

    So, 30X30=900 shots, 70,000total/900class= 78 classes, does not sound so hard now, oh well, guess it can be done fairly quickly.

    My MKII has 50k rounds through it at least! I keep thinking something’s gotta give but hasn’t happened yet.

    My SBH Bisley in .480 Ruger has been defective in the loading gate since purchase probably 4 years ago. I need to send it off to get fixed.

    Amazing how quickly time passes when you have a small thing like that pending... 😟
